IWSG, A-Z Complete and A Bloggy Break!

The Insecure Writer's Support Group

The first Wednesday of every month is reserved for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, where we tell the world our fears about being writers. Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting. If you'd like to sign up, go HERE.

So --a few months ago I worried that the novella series I wanted to write was a bit over the top. Well, I'm still worried about that, but I've written the first one, and if you followed my blog during the A-Z Challenge, then you read quite a bit about Second Death in addition to excerpts from Givin' Up The Ghost and A Guilty Ghost Surprised. It's so funny and silly that I write about ghosts and my real worry was adding a demon to the mix! (That was the Z post yesterday.) I mean, like ghosts aren't over the top but demons are? *shakes head* Anyway, people who followed my A-Z posts seemed to enjoy them, so thank you so much to everyone who stopped by to comment.

The 2013 A-Z Challenge
Mission Complete!

I finished! Even though my posts were pre-written, it was still a lot of work commenting and visiting every day. I loved everyone's creativity and it was such an awesome experience. I was a minion, too, one of Spunky's Soldiers!

Congratulations to everyone who finished! And to those who didn't, well, life does tend to get in the way, doesn't it? But really, my hat is off to those who hold a full time job and were still able to complete the A-Z! I don't know how they do it unless they're into cloning like the Ninja Captain, Alex Cavanaugh!
Thanks so much to everyone who put the A-Z Challenge together and made it run smoothly. Let's give a big hand to the A to Z Hosts, Alex J. Cavanaugh, Damyanti Biswas, Tina Downey, DL Hammons, Jeremy Hawkins, Shannon Lawrence Matthew MacNish Konstanz Silverbow, Stephen Tremp, Livia Peterson, L. Diane Wolfe, and Nicole.

 And a very special thanks to founder Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out.

And of course I have to thank Indigo Eady, who showed up every day at my blog to talk about her paranormal misadventures! Thank you, Indigo!

Bloggy Break
And now, I'm on Bloggy Break for May! I have a lot going on and will be incredibly busy this month, not to mention that blogging every day for a month sort of exhausted me. I like those blogs who posted Zzzzzzzz's for their last post. My sentiments exactly! I may be back to post something that comes up, but if not, I'll be back on June 3rd because the lovely Rachel Morgan will be here with a post about her new novel, The Faerie Prince!
